The Brazilian has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu for many years, but a move seems unlikely to happen
Real Madrid have released another statement declaring they have ‘no intention’ of signing Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.
Reports earlier this month suggested the LaLiga giants were readying a monster bid for the Brazilian superstar.
However, no such move materialised and the reigning Champions League holders released a statement declaring they are not interested.
For some reason, it seems as though they felt the need to distance themselves from the 26-year-old again, insisting they have an ‘excellent relationship’ with the Ligue 1 side.
A statement on www.realmadrid.com read: “In the face of the constant reports linking PSG’s Neymar Jr. to our club, Real Madrid C. F. wish to clarify that the club has no intention of making any offer for the player.
“The two clubs enjoy an excellent relationship and, as such, if Real Madrid were at any stage to consider securing the services of a PSG player, they would approach the club in the first instance.”
The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus has led many to speculate Real would make a move for their next ‘Galactico’.
But it appears Neymar will not be that man, with a Spanish publication claiming the tricky forward wanted to be teammates with CR7 before succeeding him at the Bernabeu.
He arrived in Paris just last summer from El Clasico rivals in a world-record €222 million move.
